*twenty-something bird enthusiast
*INFP/Scorpio/Year of the Snake
*has a nice husband
*hoodies <3
*lots of social anxiety
*but still trying to be the love i want to see in the world


Skype/Availability: currently unavailable until i can manage my time & anxiety better, woo
Trades/Requests: Only when I specifically make a journal about it, sorry. :'c
Art Raffles: per +100 watchers
Adoptables: occasionally. random designs, no associated lore or backstory, very flexible. c:
Commissions: Open for small pixel orders! <3
Frequently Posts: pixel art, fanart, birds (& bird blobs), fantasy concept art for my spouse's tabletop RPG. Hoping to return to my OC stuff sometime, but it may be a while
I can't believe it's time for another raffle! how did this happen in so little time! *v*;;;
I'm pretty sure this is the highest number I've had on any social community thing, so I'd like to make this a slightly more exciting raffle by allowing 2 winners by default! wooo


bulleted rules & things: 
  • Prizeswinners will receive one regular digital portrait & one 100x100 pixel art of any character/creature/animal/etc (fanart included!) 
    • can be of the same character or 2 different ones
    • pixel art prize can be a portrait or full body
    • restrictions:
      • no political/religious figures or symbolism from real life
      • if you'd like prize art of someone who isn't used to getting fanart of themselves or their characters, please get their permission first.
      • SFW
      • no design requests (as in, asking me to come up with something original)
    • a 3rd winner will unlock at 100 participants

  • Entry rules:

    • must be watching this account to enter
      • New watchers are welcome, though!  Feel free to share or mention this raffle if you think your watchers would be interested (though sharing is not required for entry!)
        • just don't do the thing where you watch & then unwatch when it ends--it's especially rude to participants who may be long-time watchers. I know I have no real control over this, so let's be good about the honor system? Sweating a little...
    • comment with "raffle" ((or a clear indication that you want to enter)) to get a raffle number
      • 1 entry per person
      • this post will be updated with usernames & corresponding raffle numbers 
    • If you won my previous raffle, you will not be eligible for this one. (sorry 2CatSoldier ! :( (Sad) ) 
      • You are more than welcome to enter any raffles after this one though! I just have this rule in place so that the same people can't win twice in a row. ((and since the turnout for these tends to be small, there's definitely a chance for that to happen, lol)) 
  • Raffle closing & delivery stuff:
    • Current End Date: February 1st
    • Prize art will be delivered to the first winner within 2 weeks.
      • allow an additional 2 weeks per winner 
        • will be completed in the order the winners were picked
      • will notify winner of any potential delays
    • Winner will be decided via RNG, with a screenshot of RNG posted for posterity 
      • if a winner has not responded within 48 hours, i will pick a new winner via RNG
    • Hopefully this is not something that actually needs to be said, but please be civil about the results! I try to do a raffle for every 100 watchers, so there may be more chances later! :) (Smile)
    • Apologies in advance if anything happens to prevent me from following through on this raffle ((everything's fine, i just feel more and more aware of life's uncertainty lately, lol))

    • customers will receive the sprite at 100% zoom and an additional larger zoom. different "zoom sizes" may be requested at no additional charge

IMPORTANT INFO / TERMS OF SERVICE

  • srsaraco@gmail.com is most reliable contact! I'll check notes if I see them, but dA's note system has been very unreliable for me in the past. :/
  • payment required first
    • if placing a batch order, you are allowed to pay for a piece at a time, or all at once. whichever's easier!
      • just keep in mind that i won't start on the other pieces of a batch order until they're paid for.
    • Paypal is preferred for batch orders, but I can set up a custom point payment widget if you'd really like to make a batch order & can only pay with points. 
  • if using Paypal, please wait for me to send you an invoice (which means I'll need your paypal e-mail)! 
  • No real people or fanart subjects, UNLESS the fanart fits under one of these loopholes:
    • custom video game character
    • custom browser game character/avatar
    • fakemon/fusions, or other fan characters
    • if the fanart subject only takes up a small percentage of the whole image 
    • adoptables, IF you bought ownership of it & have permission from the original artist to commission art of the adoptable
  • SFW only
    • would also like to avoid overt political/religious symbolism
  • if I ever alter prices, it will not affect orders already in the queue
  • yes, you may post the commissions elsewhere or use them as avatars--all i ask is proper credit or a link to my page. :) (Smile)
    • for avatar use on any site, just put the credit somewhere visible on your profile or signature.
  • I will always ask for permission before uploading! If my uploads appear to be skipping over orders in the queue, the commissioner probably requested that they be kept private.

  • Turnaround stuff:

    • orders will be completed within roughly 1 day of me telling you that i'm starting your order (**unless it's a batch order, see 2nd sub-bullet)
      • so, NOT necessarily within 24 hours of placing your order! depends on where you fall in the queue.
      • in some cases, i may just give you a specified time (for instance, "i should have this done tomorrow evening")
      • **for batch orders, allow an additional 24hrs for each additional piece ((possibly sooner if i'm on a roll!))
        • you may choose whether or not you'd like to receive them as they're completed, or all at once
      • If your slot falls on a weekend, the estimated delivery date will generally be pushed to Monday (plus however many days, if your order is a batch). It's possible that I can get some work done on a weekend, but since weekends are generally less predictable, I don't include them in estimated delivery times.
    • Will maintain a maximum queue of 10 slots at a time (1 slot=1 day), which means that the last order on the queue should still be done within 2 weeks, as long as my personal life isn't crazy
      • orders will be added to the queue in order of payment
        • You may pay in advance to reserve a spot, if you like. (For instance, if you know what kind of order you'd like, but haven't decided on the subject, or don't have finalized references for the subject yet. I'll begin work on a reserved order once the proper references are provided.)
      • each piece of a batch will take up 1 spot on the queue (ex: 4-piece batch, 4 slots)
        • I may allow one or two spots of overflow if queue is full, so feel free to ask about small orders, even if the 10 main slots are taken.
      • if my personal life is causing delays, i will let you know! 
        • if you haven't heard from me in over 2 weeks, assume that something pretty bad happened to me! :/
        • Refunds may be negotiated in the event of excessive delays, as long as I am alive enough to negotiate them. :P (Lick)
  • I reserve the right to decline business with suspicious/untrusted identities! If your online identity seems suspiciously empty/impersonal, or if I've found reports of payment problems associated with your identity, I may decline your order. I'm sad that this rule is necessary at all, but unfortunately the internet is still full of scammers. :( (Sad) Hopefully it won't end up being an issue! <3

Thanks so much for watching me back! I found your stuff on pixel-commissioners, I love your style and am definitely keen to commission you once I put some money aside. =) Looking forward to seeing more of your work in the meantime!
